Community health talks to go through weekend

As contract talks for 13,000 community health workers get set to go through the weekend, HSA negotiators Charlie Wheat and Lori Horvat report that while small progress has been made in the past several days, health employers have still not moved on the key issues for front line workers.

In an effort to jump start discussions, the multi-union bargaining association tabled a new monetary proposal Friday afternoon.

Weekend negotiations are expected to focus on scheduling and an early intervention plan.
